Agreed. While I do like the easy cR. I'm much happier that the challenges were for firefight. Nice stuff, would like to see them include both multi and firefight in daily challenges rather than have them alternating but I'll take what I can get for now.

Thanks, slipped my mind to update the cR range of the challenges. It's fixed now and I'll be keeping that aspect up to date from now on.

Thanks. I'd love to be linked to your guide. Btw, hilarious avatar, nice little laugh every time I see it.

I've never written something like this before so I'm still getting the hang of it. The biggest obstacle is that because of university I haven't even played the game yet. I have my Legendary Edition sitting at home just waiting for me, and this weekend I plan on doing nothing else but play it because it'll be another two weeks before I get another chance. Once I get in a few games of Firefight and Multiplayer I'll be able to offer better tips.

Big thread to take on. And you gotta start somewhere on the writing part. And I'm glued to university too. I'm happy you enjoy my avatar , it's quite naughty and sooo funny! But I'll figure out where to post it correctly, and congrats on the sticky .

todays challenges are easy as can be unless you have ppl fighting for the Target Locator >_<

the only tricky one is "DOUBLE DOUBLE"

for some reason i can never get get 2 double kills in a match but i can usually get at least one.

if you are willing to help me get double double i will def. return the favor.

thanks

Play invasion, then (for those not too familiar with the game-type): vote for boneyard regular invasion when it comes up and hope others do too (I've played that one a lot so it seems to be fairly common). Get the tank if the enemy team gets to the third and final part of the round. Sometimes the enemy team won't make it that far but if you play a few games one of them should, then make sure you get a respawn and choose the vehicle depot or whatever it's called (warthog and tank spawn there). Wait for the tank to spawn and then go to work. Two double kills should be a piece of a cake and believe it or not, a lot of people don't specifically choose where to spawn in Invasion when they are at that part of the round (other than closest to where the action is) unless they want to get a vehicle but most are too pre-occupied with taking the core/defending the core. You can also easily do it with the Wraith from the second part of the round and on and it will spawn near the ghost & banshee in the middle of the area you originally spawn at as the elites.

I've gotten two double kills (and even higher kill streaks, including killtacular, etc..) doing several different things but Invasion is great if you are looking to rack up on those commendations. Team slayer and slayer are good as well however people are more focused on kills so you may wind up with more assists than objective-based games. Now if the lobby chooses Invasion Slayer, well there will be a little bit of objective focus (area controls for ordinance spawns, etc..) but a lot more focus on combat overall so try to go for regular Invasion and boneyard is a great map for what you are going for.

Nice thread btw, I was actually thinking of making a daily/weekly challenges thread to give people tips in however it's nice to see people have been helping one another.

Most challenges should and will be fairly simple, others just may require a little more time but other than that none have been difficult whatsoever and they've been pretty fun. For example yesterday you could just play Gruntpocalypse and within a little more than two games without going crazy looking for needlers but grabbing them and ammo for them when they were within a reasonable area, you could've had every daily challenge complete plus all the extra credits that Gruntpocalypse gives (although I rarely play it because I prefer matchmaking & co-op, once in a while is fine without getting too repetitive for me).

Most outdoor maps and you can find one when they drop Ordinance. That weapon isn't always in the Ordinance of course (can be a sniper rifle, rocket launcher, etc..) but that's where you can find them (obviously an indoor-only map like Corvette won't have one).

Wow today's challenges are just awful. It terms of credits, difficulty, and time required. Yesterday you could easily earn 5000 credits in half an hour. Today the most you can get is 2250 and it'll take much longer than half an hour. I don't understand why they don't stay somewhat consistent with challenges. All multiplayer one day, all firefight the next.

Your dedication to this site and the game you have not even played is admirable man!!! You rock!!!

I wish there was a way we could help you keep it updated. In case you are unable to post.

Waterfront and Swordbase almost always have one in the ordance bins. Swordbase's is generally in the one right to the left of the initial spawn point near the breezeway. Wait until the covenant dropship settles down and opens its doors and then rain hell upon the unsuspecting foes!!!

I'm not sure, but you can take the fighting for the Target Locator out of the equation if you play Score Attack on an outdoor map that has Ordinance...

What, you don't like 15 threads about the "If they came to hear me beg" achievement, and 30 more about methods of boosting, Swordbase boosting, Gruntpocolypse boosting, and whether or not you can get banned for it? But they're all so original!

I wish we had a Thought/Question of the Day thread on this forum, and that it would actually get used...

Ugh, today's Target Locator challenge is making for some really crappy games in Firefight. I'm 40/40 in the Daily Challenges since launch, and I knew the streak would come to an end eventually, but this one I don't find so much as difficult as just plain irritating. Twice now I've been pummeled in the back by a teammate just as I was about to grab it. That's when you REALLY want that betrayal booting option to pop up (it didn't.) The one time I managed to snag it, one teammate intentionally walked into the circle (killing himself) and booted me out for betraying him.

It's similar to last week's Firefight challenge where you had to survive the entire round. I played one game on Corvette where all four players right from the start just camped in the back room. It was pretty funny.

I know Bungie is trying to provide a good mix to keep things fresh but they really should try to avoid challenges that encourage "bad" behaviour.

Oh well, now that the streak is over I can just concentrate on playing for fun again and getting the credits I need for the 1000 Gs.

The worst part is that this "bad behavior" is for a few hundred credits, which isn't exactly a lot. That's why I don't really like to play firefight matchmaking with randoms. They tend to either talk way to much and annoyingly, or do stupid shit like betray me with rockets.
